Impact Narrative

Katalin’s OVER proposal:

“I am a PhD student at the University of Szeged, thus I regularly teach undergraduate (Geography BSc, Earth Science BSc) courses of geomorphology and lead groups of students at field visits and field works. During their studies students learn a lot about the environmental problems your publication is trying to raise attention to. Therefore a few printed copies of the book would be very useful for educational purposes, to show them the real scale of these problems we globally have to face. Also, during their field works they come across many of these issues happening literally at their doorstep (especially the results of pollution due to development). Taking the book with us to the field works when all of us faces the problems could help raise awareness of the scale of it. This way they would be taught to look out for environmental change around them, around the world, and hopefully inspire them to take pictures of their own localities, and showing it to the world and also to stakeholders. Maybe after graduation they will be in a position to negotiate with councils, governmental organisations or other stakeholders to make some changes and raise more widespread awareness of the issued mentioned.”
